Welcome to the new guy! And more morning news

The Daily News has some background on that new guy with the bleached-blond hair who started in the midfield and assisted Le Toux in the game winning goal, Eduardo Coudet. He’s 35, he’s from Argentina, and you can expect the announcement of his signing any second.

More on Coudet, who won three titles with River Plate, from the Union website. Says Coach Nowak, “He has been (training) with us for a while and tonight we just wanted to give him some minutes, but we’ve know of his abilities for a while. We are looking for someone to come in here and be a leader and he fits that mold.” Coudet, the article says, “has scored more than 50 career goals in over 400 appearances for 12 different clubs over a span of 17 seasons.”

MLSsoccer.com looks at back-up keepers Brad Knighton and new fan favorite Brian Perk who combined against Celtic to earn the Union’s first shut-out at PPL Park (and this season.) Said Perk, “It was awesome, I had a blast.” So did we, Brian, so did we.
